FERPA Assessment


Is your privacy program compliant with Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, or are student records at risk?

Schools and universities that fail to meet FERPA compliance face adverse outcomes including the forfeit of federal funding and enforcement of fines. This assessment will get you started on compliance, identify gaps that exist in your privacy program, and create a prioritized action plan to keep student records safe.
